Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni
Location: Between the Cannaregio
Canal and just beyond the Campo del Ghetto Vecchio.
You require a hotel with kosher breakfast, a kosher restaurant, and
mikveh baths in the historic Jewish Ghetto of Venice.
The Kosher House Giardino dei Melograni is located in the oldest part of
the Ghetto (the Campo del Ghetto Vecchio), which is between the
Gam Gam restaurant and the large
square of the Campo del Ghetto Nuovo. The simply-furnished rooms are
air-conditioned and have private bathrooms. Kosher meals are available
daily including Shabbat (when a set "Shabbat meal" is served). In warm
weather, you can eat in the private courtyard.

Giardino dei Melograni is ahead and on the right, just beyond the
Campo del Ghetto Vecchio.
